American ISPs Reportedly Rolling Out 'SIX STRIKES' Anti-Piracy Rules on Monday




A long-delayed set of anti-piracy rules could be put in place early next week. Sources have told both The Daily Dot nd TorrentFreak that five major US ISPs AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner Cable, Comcast, and Cablevision will roll out their Copyright Alert System on Monday in a partnership with the entertainment industry. Also referred to as the "six strikes" program, the CAS is a graduated alert system that starts with "educational notices;" if ISPs continue to find copyright infringement, they'll send further reminders and finally throttle or temporarily block internet browsing. It's distinct from more controversial "three strikes" proposals that would cut off users from the internet completely.

"Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use."

Personally, I use RetroShare. Don't download much myself, use it more for it's social aspect and encrypted privacy. But it's a breeze to download safely with it in the US if that is what you want to do. Im too lazy to do anything like configure Tor, proxies and do pure I2P. This is enough for me.

It's been in development for 6 years. Only now getting stable and widely noticed.
